My Zune HD

So I ran out and bought myself a zune HD the first week it came out, i think! i like it plenty. Sure, peeps will think "she should have gotten an itouch/iphone but nah, i already have an ipod and my sis has an itouch hehehe i wanted something NEW to play with.

I wanted to mention a bit about it. The screen is pretty nice. I believe it has great HD quality. The touch is also responsive. Sometimes the reaction time can be a little slow but I didn't expect it to be super fast since I don't have anything to compare it to except for my sister's itouch and it's comparable. The interface is neat and good sized. White on black is pretty sexy =P Since I was used to the itunes software and ipod interface, I had to get used to some of the differences the zune HD provides. After a few uses, I was up to speed and it is great. There's a shortcut button when your phone is "locked" to access the music player. That is, to start a song, pause, go to the next song, and volume controls without having to unlock (if you screen lock your zune) Quick access is awesome!

I've yet to play my own videos on it. There is one already on the zune and then another one you can DL from the app store aka Zune Marketplace. That's where you can get the uber limited number of games for the zune as well. The movies are so clear!! pretty awesome =) I plan to sometime get the Zune HD AV dock or whatever soon...not sure when though. It'll be sweet when things get going on marketplaces and movies are DLable and then just plug it into the dock and BADA BING, watch it on my HDTV =D that'll be AWEsome *_*

There's this thing called the Zune Pass. It basically lets you listen to full unlimited songs and every month, you get to keep 10 of them! i guess it's cool...but i haven't done it. Costs $15/month...hehe...

the internet browser is its own lil thing so there are pages it just can't render. A little lame there but most sites with a mobile counterpart do well. I like reading my news on there =) i also don't mind the little keyboard it has to type in searches, urls and fb updates hehe bigger fingers might have issues.

As many people have noted, this baby totally needs APPS!! It comes with a Weather app by from MSN and some limpy games. Oh and of course the good ole calculator!! C'mon Microsoft, open up that SDK! i wanna make some apps! soon i say, SOON...=D

and that's my take on this sweet device!
